Waffles galore!

Because I have never had cornmeal sitting in my pantry before, if I see it in a recipe, it screams make me!  So I have this website in my facebook newsfeed and she posted a recipe for Whole wheat cornmeal waffles.  So I listened to my inner voice and made them this morning.  I haven’t had a ton of luck with the cornmeal in recipes, but this was a hit.  One of the kiddos ate 1 1/2 waffles!  But the real test will come once my anti-whole wheat husband tries them.  I thought they had a great flavor and actually thought the cornmeal was successful at adding a little extra “Wow!” to the waffles.

And this recipe makes a bunch!  These are our extras that went into the freezer.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder

Instructions

  1. Mix together milk, eggs, butter and oil.
  2. Add brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
